MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Pfizer and Moderna have boosted the prices for their vaccines in latest EU supply contracts, Financial Times reported on Sunday.
The manufactures raised the prices by over a quarter and more than 10%, respectively, which means that a vaccine dose by Pfizer now costs 19.5 euros ($22.9) and that by Moderna costs $25.5, according to the newspaper.
The pharmaceuticals declined to comment on the pricing policies, Financial Times said.
The demand for COVID-19 vaccines is being supported by booster campaigns that have been launched in some countries and a rapid spread of the Delta coronavirus variant.
